By SkeeterIt has been hot in my Georgia Garden the past week. The temp in our car was saying 104 as we headed to dinner one evening! Yikes, my gardens and grass have been wanting water so badly from Mother Nature rather then my hose. We tried to stay cool with our Great Niece and Great Nephew's visit! Mackie D's indoors air conditioned playground is a great place to burn some energy. While also having a bite of lunch.
Shopping with Uncle Saint and Aunt Skeeter is always fun as well.Aunt Skeeter cannot resist being a bit silly at times. Hum, is that ice cream or sour cream on our upper lips? Got Milk?The kids were happy to see the deer in our gardens. With lack of rain, they are coming to the bird baths for a drink every day.
The kids could not pet the wild deer in our yard but could pet our neighbors horse's, Harley and Georgia.
They loved keeping cool while running through the water sprinkler. I was entertaining them while keeping the gardens and grass happy at the same time! Here they are taking a drink break on the swing with the sprinkler flowing. I remember running through my grandmothers water sprinkler when I was a child. I wonder if these two will remember playing in Aunt Skeeters sprinkler and gardens???Little man made himself a nice tent in the sun room.A small pool was added to our Gardens for the kids to keep cool while playing.Taking showers with the garden hose seem to be more fun then the pool for the kids.They would soap up and each other would spray off the other. They thought that was so neat. I some times think it is the little things they will remember from their visit.
Craft time was a busy day. I braved the paints with an old plastic table cloth.
So many beautiful things were made with those little hands.
I now have a Monkey to put into my plants! How awesome is that? On their last night here, we had a party in the living room complete with the Disco Ball...
And "Happy Vacation" cake. The kids found out what trick candles are all about. Hee hee... Karaoke had the adults rolling on the floor with laughter. The kids were so cute singing their little hearts out and entertaining us. The Saint hooked up his Electric Guitar to give us a little concert, then the party started to wind down. My Brother, his wife and their grandchildren, have now departed and the house is way too quiet. I miss those TWO LITTLE MUNCHKINS, In the Garden...
Note: Yippee, we finally had a pop up shower pass through today giving us a greatly needed 1/2 inch drink of water for the Garden. My water bill this month will be a big one for sure with all the watering and the pool. I am excited about the rain....
